I am a Solicitor in the Public Law and Human Rights team, based in Irwin Mitchell’s Birmingham office.
I specialise in Court of Protection health and welfare cases, involving issues related to mental capacity, best interests and deprivation of liberty. I also act for clients who have ongoing difficulties with social services, the NHS and other public bodies. I advise clients in relation to their medical treatment and other clinical disputes.
I have worked at Irwin Mitchell since 2012 and previously specialised in medical negligence cases, acting for clients who had suffered an injury or deterioration in their condition as a result of sub-standard care by hospitals, GPs and other healthcare providers.
Alongside my casework, I have a keen interest in pro bono and increasing access to legal advice. I currently manage Irwin Mitchell’s involvement with regular free legal clinics that take place at Acorns Children’s Hospice in Selly Oak in conjunction with LawWorks. In 2018 I was awarded the Birmingham Law Society Pro Bono Award.
